Baylor University Alumni Financial Support: An Archival Case Study on How Campus Expansion Persisted in a World War II Economy
Erck, Ryan W.
American Educational History Journal, v46 n1 p55-71 2019
Historically, tactful and calculated development efforts have been attempted through various avenues in American higher education institutions. Higher education institutions have been creative in their attempts to ensure financial solvency. However, the common fallback of tuition increases have proved insufficient to meet most institutions' spending needs. This is magnified during economically challenging times. Cheslock and Gianneschi (2008) explain that "when tuition dollars cannot be increased further, higher education institutions will become especially reliant upon alternative sources of revenue. Private giving is one of the more promising possibilities" (210). This archival essay will highlight the case of how one institution, Baylor University, implemented such a strategy to maintain campus advancement during World War II.
